Today's The Conversation in Australia has a splendid piece on the linguistic issues (in Australia) that cause pedants like us to frenzy (is that a verb?)

Anyway it is fun and so are most of the added comments for those that have time.

Quite fun, thanks for passing it on. I never knew the Mo√ęt pronunciation. I always thought it to be French and that the Queen song had it right.

Thanks, David, for the article. Most of the last half are just as likely to show up here in the South.
